Our Work

The Trust has long supported charities working in Africa and  charities working with families and with prisoners in Britain.  While wishing to maintain funding in these broad areas, Trustees have decided to narrow the focus of their support.  

Please read our guidelines carefully to decide if your appeal will fall into the categories of what we fund.

Our Board

Our Board comprises seven Trustees:   Emma Compton-Burnett (Chairman), Katie Aston, Katie Buxton, Simon Buxton, Sir Brendan Gormley KCMG, John Littlewood, Jo Tunnard (Vice Chair)


Our Commitment to Good Practice

The Trustees follow best practice in governance as recommended in Charity Commission guidance.  Accordingly, Trustees have adopted policies relevant to the Trusts areas of focus including guidance on investment, trustee recruitment, risk mitigation and management of any arising conflicts of interest.
